To the point: No

Don't worry about neon either, do some decent beefing up to the engine before you make the car into a light show.

WTF no please don`t put that on...for one thing your car is a front wheel drive........not rear where that wing will give you down force.........looks like my wing on the F3`* i use to race ...sorry bro that spoiler has no place on the street on any nice cars ....like our Bonnie`* just my opinion lad let some RICER buy it and put in on his Civic

I wouldn't recommend the wing for the same reason stated above. However, if you want Neon lights for under the car.. they look sweet.. especially on SSEI'* due to the extra skirting that can cover up the neon tubes themselves. If you want cosmetic appearance first.. out of your 2 choices.. I'd go with the Neon.. but as a precaution.. I would also build a clear plastic shielding around it to protect it from road debris that might otherwise break the neon tubes and costing you more to constantly replace it... that and it looks like crap when 3 out of 4 sides of your car is lit.

Definently dont waste your money on the spoiler. As far as the under car neons, I would rather put it into the motor. Ive seen some on the road and just dont really like them. On some they do look nice. What color were you thinking of getting that to me is the hardest part of it all. That either makes or breaks how it will look on your car. Me personally I would put it into the motor itself. But as always to each his own.

Don't worry about what people think of your car. Do stuff to your car that makes YOU happy. Not the "goons" in their little pimped out rides that have no performance at all.

Yea... but wouldn't it be more fun to hand them their *** in front of all their peers by a family sedan ( that may not fit their bad *** image ) then it actually is to look badass? It'* kinda like saying.. whoo... that kid on his pedal bike just smoked my Type R.. ha ha ha.. you get more respect by whooping their *** then to bark like a little dog trying to sound big.

Hey, Shel, post some pics of your car so we can view what it looks like. You can do it easy on cardomain.com then we can give you advice on how to make it sweeter...It seems you want to mod it cosmetically
Deep window tint is always a start, have you done that? then maybe some custom wheels? tinted light covers? you'd be amazed how those things can transform a stock SSEi into something more radical
